Chicken House acquires The Breathing Sea by Lindsay Galvin
We’re super excited to announce a brand new acquisition, The Breathing Sea by debut author Lindsay Galvin. An electrifying and unputdownable YA adventure, the novel follows a group of teens stranded on a desert island as they uncover a thrilling underwater secret …
Orphaned siblings Aster and Reed wake on an idyllic island, their short-term memories wiped and their younger brother missing. Soon the pair encounter something marvellous and impossible: a boy, Kayo, who lives and breathes underwater. The arrival of their eccentric aunt, Iona, promises answers. Instead, they’re told that the inhabitants of the island – and the surrounding sea – are now maybe the last humans alive on the planet …
SIGN. US. UP. The Breathing Sea is due to be published in summer 2018 – we can’t wait!
Head Chicken Barry Cunningham says, 'From the breathtaking opening to the breath-holding underwater scenes, The Breathing Sea is a call for readers to save the planet as well as themselves. A thriller for our times!'
Lindsay said: 'Meeting Rachel and Barry was so exhilarating for me because they understood exactly what I wanted to say with The Breathing Sea. I’m thrilled to have their expert support on my debut journey and to be joining the supremely talented and inspirational team of Chicken House authors. Pinch me, I’m dreaming!'
